NAACP Rep. Says Reid "No Negro Dialect" Remark was "Awkward" but is Not "Offensive" - Video 1/11/10


Here is video of an NAACP representative on Fox News today where he defended Sen. Harry Reid as a "champion for Civil Rights." This despite comments by Reid were revealed in a new book where he said Barack Obama could be accepted by the American people because he is "light-skinned" and because he has "no Negro Dialect" unless he wants to have one. Reid made the remarks privately during the 2008 Campaign.

The NAACP Rep. said that Reid's words were "awkward, but not "offensive."
"The way he said it was quite awkward, but nonetheless, not offensive. That what he said was actually part of a calculus as to why he believed Barack Obama could be elected in this country today."
Somehow, if any Republican had made these comments I doubt seriously this would be the reaction of the NAACP.

Well! That's a relief! Now we have it officially from the President, the Black Congressional Congress and the NAACP that it is OK to remark about 'Negro dialect' without being attacked by the PC Police.

It is also pretty clear by implication from Sen. Reid's remarks that speaking in a Negro dialect is not an advantage in business or politics. Is it safe now to encourage [Negro, Black, African-American (choose one)children to learn to speak standard English? It should be, for their benefit if not for the benefit of the professional grievance mongerers.

Oprah doesn't have a negro dialect either.
